Wilhelm Loehe has been called "the great grandfather" of the Common Service 1888, which provided English-speaking Lutherans of German descent an order of worship for the principal service of the congregation.

From the Common Service of 1888, there are lines of development that extend into the worship books used by most North American Lutherans today. (2) How was it that the German Lutheran pastor Wilhelm Loehe became a progenitor of liturgical orders and practice in North America? The answer lies in the story of Loehes Agendefiir christlichen Gemeinden des lutherischen Bekenntnisses (Agenda for Christian Congregations of the Lutheran Confession).
